to have paula faris, and rachel smith, host of "on the red carpet" back with us this morning. >>> and we're back from the holidays. we're all thinking about returning the gifts, right? just kidding. there's people that are going to be in the return lines. becky worley is here with the scoop on how to score on both. >>> let's get right to sam. he's been tracking the rough weather that's impacted so many millions over the week. >> some prepared for it. they were warned in advance. what a night. 34 tornadoes rocked that area. the previous christmas tornadoes had been 12 in 1969. when we tell you this was an epic event, it truly was. take a look at some of the damage. the abc station from birmingham, sending us some pictures from the mobile area. look at these in the deep south. new orleans to montgomery. outside of new orleans, tornado warnings all over the deep south. last night, on twitter, your pictures were sending us all the damage. matt gutman was landing in mobile just about the time that storms got to that area. what's it like this morning? >> reporter: as the sun is coming up, we'r
in 1999 made us all understand that our schools are no longer safe havens. beth lost her daughter rachel. she joins me on the phone from colorado. thank you so much, beth, for being with us. >> how do you ever heal from something like that? >> it takes a long long time. i described it as being hit by a freight train and you don't even know how hard you have been hit. and for years you can walk around with the pain and brokenness of that. and but, you know, it comes and goes. and for us, it was a very long healing process. but we did actually become stronger for it. and some good things have come out of it. and all the talk about evil, evil showed its face that day and i can honestly say it didn't win because out of losing rachel, we also gained a platform for much good. first of all for our faith, which sustained us during this time and also for programs and a lot of speaking regarding compassion and kindness and been involved in a lot of schools and churches and youth programs to do that and that brought some healing. but it is a very long long process. there is a light at the end of th
barack obama and michelle obama, and rachel, from what i understand, took a larger view looking at the first lady and her larger ancestry and putting together a larger story as a result. >> host: now, bob -- >> guest: now, those -- >> host: go ahead, please. >> guest: no, i was just going to say of the three, my favorite was the marines. it was exhaustive and exhausting. there's every detail, and it ends as obama is going off to harvard or just enters harvard law school. it's a coming of age biography, the early part of the president's life, and it was very well researched. the jodi book on the political marriage, i thought it was a bit forced. i feel unless you're part of a marriage, it's awful hard to understand, and, especially, when she -- cantor tried to make the case that michelle obama was far more political than she would let on and political tension, a lot of sort of counts of fighting in the obama white house, reported widely in the early days. rachel's history was valuable because we forget although the attention is on president obama being the first black president,
of books, current presidents and this year is no exception for president obama. rachel swansboro ran about mrs. o'connor called american tapestry. jodi cantor wrote the eponymous and david marinus first half of his biography of president obama, barack obama the story came out as well. >> guest: yes, whenever there is a sitting president it is a print for publishers who can jump on a bandwagon in publishes many books as possible. in the interesting because it helped them them to be shouted to a student in a year to his early organizing days and really did a thorough job in terms of talk with a full plethora of people in his early life. jodi cantor did a lot of recording an investigation with your book about the marriage between barack and michelle obama and rachel swarms took a larger view, looking at the first lady and her lurcher ancestry in putting together a lurcher story is the result. >> host: bob, go ahead, please. >> guest: i was going to jump in. of those three may paper with marinus. in my review i read of this exhaustive and exhausting. he goes into every detail and his and his o
here on "the ed show." and that is "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow" show starts right now. >> thanks. there is a lot to get to this hour, including news about potential gun law reforms and the continuing reaction to the newtown, connecticut, school massacre there. is some surprising news out of michigan on that issue today that we're going to be getting to. there is news about who is going to be in the united states senate in this next congress. we found out yesterday who is being tapped to replace senator jim demint, who is leaving the senate. we also found out yesterday who might replace john kerry if he leaves the senate to be secretary of state. we found out today who is the odds-on favorite to replace long-time hawaii senator daniel inouye, who died yesterday. we've got all that news ahead. >>> but we begin tonight with something that is an important story in its own terms. but for those of us at msnbc and nbc news, it is also an incredibly emotional thing. and i can tell you, it ends with good news. it ends with this news, which i can say personally was greeted b
reasons i personally don't wear skinny jeans. abc's rachel smith, is looking into whether hot pants can make you a hot mess. >> good morning, guys. maybe feeling like a hot mess is more like it. many of us have been a victim of fashion at some points in our lives. seeing people wearing the jeans everywhere. skin-tight, painted on. and they look great. but what if that trend pinches more than your wallet and crushes more than your ego. ♪ i got my tight pants on >> reporter: will ferrell may have mocked them on jimmy fallen. but everybody's getting into them. the first family. taylor swift. even her new beau. but this fashion do may pose some troubling health don'ts. those tight pants can squeeze more than your silhouette. pinching the nerves in your hip. >> it's a sore that occurs when one of the nerves that runs in the outer part of the thigh gets compressed. and pressure on it causes symptoms of tingling, numbness and pain. >> reporter: other possible health hazards, abdominal pain, heartburn, even blood clots. but fashionistas were willing to take the risk. circulation problems, pot
, rachel. we know that they came here as the children were brought here. and they went through the work, and we're talking about hundreds of kids now, of matching the children with their parents. in the end you have 20 sets of parents who are left. and it is left to be told to them. and the governor was among those who were there to tell the parents that your children are not going to be coming home. and so i think it goes without saying the devastation that this community is feeling. the sense of -- i wouldn't even can say outrage yet. in my experience at these things, the outrage comes later. but the total feeling of hopelessness and senselessness that has overcome this community as they try to figure out why something like this could happen, rachel. >> chris, thinking about that initial response, thinking not just about what it must have been like to be personally connected to that, but to be a first responder coming upon that scene and needing to do the active shooter search that we know that law enforcement did once they determined that the shooter was dead, then assessing what had
in their time and north africa. which is, in a way, why they survived. >> rachel cox, this is her book, "into dust and fire: five young americans who went first to fight the nazis." she didn't want to give away too much of the ending, but just a little bit. rachel cox has another uncle who became rather notorious. >> archibald cox. everyone called him uncle bill. nobody knows why, but that was his nickname. maybe he just didn't like being called archibald. >> honestly he is well-connected. there is the watergate era, what you remember about that era? >> well, i think that the general feeling was it was characteristic of him. to resign when he was put in a position. i guess he was fired, actually. anyway, he wouldn't do what the president told him to do. he left. so it is kind of what uncle robbie did. family did what they believed was right. based on their convictions. it all kind of made sense to me at the time. i didn't have any sense of, you know, betrayal or anything like that. he went on about his business. and i was proud of him. >> rachel cox is the former editor of preservation magazi
rachel maddow show" starts right now. ezra cline filling in for "the rachel maddow show" tonight. >> good evening. a dreary december day turned out to be full of news today including big news out of the supreme court. and one of the coolest pictures ever having a big revooufl. but we begin with important news out of washington. for all the squabbling politicians and the whining pundits, we can announce to you tonight, right here, right now, there's a budget deal that's becoming clear. our long national nightmare might almost, and i repeat, it's washington, almost be over. this is kind of like one of those kids games where you have to look at a picture that looks like nonsense until your eyes filter out the garbage and you can finally see the sailboat. that's what's going on in washington. you have to filter out the garbage. take yesterday for example. i don't tune into c-span 2 for comedy, just because it's good television. but the senate was being hilarious about the debt ceiling, which is hard to be hilarious about. here's what happened. the white house has been pushing a plan to take c
not understood], and rachel tom. the next speaker? >>> hello, my name is [speaker not understood]. we have to leave so i wonder if i'm going to be able to read her comment in addition to my own. >> you'll have to squeeze it into your own time. >>> i'll read mine first. i think it might be short. my name is [speaker not understood]. i'm a san francisco state environmental studies major and i also live in district 1. san francisco's precautionary principle resolution states that the city has an obligation to consider a full range of alternatives. the recreation and parks department's failure to consider [speaker not understood] all alternatives to the sharp park golf course reenvironment plan violation of san francisco's precautionary principle resolution. buried on page 527 of the last page of the draft e-i-r, it is stated that the registration alternatives were rejected because they were not compatible with the existing and planned 18-hole layout of the historic golf course. the recommended management actions for the sharp park in the draft e-i-r do not refer to a planned 18-hole layout. h

healthcare. something so geeky that i'm pushing the limits that even the "the rachel maddow show" staff of geeks will tolerate, the producers here get me to do it in two minutes or less. tonight's challenge comes in something i mentioned earlier. the medicare eligibility age. sexy topic, right? try to control yourself, rachel maddow's audience. despite the fact it's unpopular, republicans really want to make cuts in medicare and specifically they want to raise the eligibility age by two years, from 65 to 67. that's also super unpopular. but the white house is open to it. they are open to it in 2011 in the boehner/obama talks. they are open to it now. what's weird about this policy is it's always presented as the height of fiscal responsibility, even though it's kind of fiscally irresponsible, which brings us to the challenge. why raising the age does not save you very much money and is probably a bad policy idea in under two minutes. do we have the clock? let's do it. the argument for cutting 65 and 67 years old out of medicare in a deficit talk is simple. it saves money. the keizer family found

here, rachel, and to have all of you here. it's a lovely summer evening, and it is getting hot out there. summer will now descend upon us. we have a special treat in store for you. as you probably have read and heard about recently the book rachel swarm was written "american tapestry." i am looking forward to hear hearing about the process of this book. to begin i think what the audience probably doesn't know is that we have a lot of support, kind of a community of behind-the-scenes players. starting with the genealogist then a fellowship and maybe just to get started let's talk about the book itself and how we arrived at this amazing story. >> you know, i wrote a story in october of 2009 about the first lady's family. that became the genesis of this book. i am a journalist. this is my first book. this is a new experience for me. >> congratulations. >> thank you.
